You may want to define which one . For example there are radio, heater control, heater motor even cigarette lighter. There are a few.

Hi bob, hope all is well. Do you any chance have pics or part numbers of that cigarette lighter delete?

Hi Jimmy, here you go with a couple pictures of the cigarette delete. I do not know the part numbers.

Enjoy

As far as anybody can tell all 65-66 street cars came with heaters and lighters. If I'm wrong somebody please let me know. I run a heater delete because it keeps that annoying heater from eventually leaking on the floor and taking it out. Also like the clean engine compartment. The lighter delete plug is correct, I have one on my '65 coupe.

The allure of the delete items is typically for the 65 GT350 R model and tribute crowd.

Do you have the heater defrost duct vent delete plates?

I always thought the radio delete was the only thing that was deleted, so to clarify - The radio block off plate is what I am asking about.

This 1966 is being offered BIN for $279.99 and the 65 for $225.  Currently a "No sale" on both, too high.  The 1966 version will work on a 1965 Mustang.  The 1965 version will not work on a 1966 Mustang, because of the inside round corners on the dash and pointy corners on the delete plate.

Ebay Auctions No. 234024628128 (66) and 154570764737 (65)

Cory,
The 63 and the Fai lead me to believe that this may have had other prior light weight duties ?
Possibly an early Fai Thunderbolt or ?
just saying>>

thanks for the pics!! Can you possibly make me a template for the duct deletes. Need those, wonder what would be the best matching material to cut them out of??
